Original story

As winners of the PSAC championship, the California University of Pennsylvania volleyball team (28-8) received an automatic bid to the NCAA Division II Atlantic Regional Tournament. The Vulcans will be seeded third when the contest takes place Nov. 20-22 in the Alma Grace McDonough Center at Wheeling Jesuit University. 

Cal U will face sixth-seeded Mercyhurst (18-12) in a quarterfinal match on Dec. 5. If the Vulcans defeat the Lakers, Cal U will advance to a Nov. 21 semifinal match against either Clarion or Edinboro University. 

Coached by Peter Letourneau, the Cal U volleyball team is making its 11th consecutive appearance in the NCAA Division II Tournament. The Vulcans advanced to the national quarterfinals in three consecutive years, from 2007-2009, and have appeared in each of the past eight Atlantic Regional championship finals.

The winners of each of the NCAA’s eight regional contests will advance to the championship finals Dec. 4-6 in Louisville, Ky.
